Stitch Fashion Show 2007

11.13.07 / by

Last weekend I shot the 2007 “Stitch Fashion Show and Guerrilla Craft Bazaar“, put on every year by the ladies of the Austin Craft Mafia. Runway as seen from backstageThis is a pretty amazing event. They’ve grown so quickly that in the five years they’ve been putting it on they’ve progressively outgrown each venue. This year they sold out the Austin Convention Center.

Getting ready for Stich 2007I was assigned to shoot documentary-style images, and given free-reign to shoot what I wanted, which was cool since some photographers had very specific roles. I shot a lot of the backstage preparations, as well as the vendors, crowds, and events happening in the main exhibition hall area.

Thanks so much to Tina Sparkles and Jesse for the opportunity.
